Explore San Diego’s Beaches
Visiting San Diego for the first time can be quite an overwhelming experience because it has so much to offer! Between the beaches, museums, parks, shopping, spectacular dining, and all the scenery it almost seems impossible to see everything! There are endless possibilities in the city of San Diego, and we want to make sure you get the most out of your experience. This is why we have created itineraries for you and your family to follow. That way you don’t have to worry about a thing! We have it all mapped out for you. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the beauty of San Diego and all it has to offer.
For a day of beach activities, start in Coronado. There, you’ll find a long, wide beach with clean sand and water. Walk along the shore or relax on a towel in the sand. For some exercise, you can rent a bike from Bikes & Beyond and explore the cute streets of Coronado. As you explore, you can’t miss the famous Hotel Del Coronado, an impressive building in Southeast Coronado. The Hotel has plenty of great dining options, and their Crown Room Sunday brunch has been voted the best in San Diego County!
As you head north on your beach day, make a stop at Mission Bay. This is San Diego’s most popular destination for watersports—jetskiing, windsurfing, waterskiing, you name it! The Adventure Center is a great source for watersport rentals, and their location right on the bay can’t be beat!
La Jolla Shores is the next major beach in San Diego on our journey up the coast. The north end of the beach is one of the best places to learn to surf, with big yet gentle waves and even sets. Book a surf lesson with Menehune Surf. Their friendly instructors will have you standing up on a board by the end of your session!
Finally, conclude your day in Oceanside. Watch the sunset at Harbor Beach and stroll along the harbor pier—one of the longest recreational wooden piers on the West Coast. At Oceanside Harbor, choose from many fun restaurants like Joe’s Crab Shack and Rockin’ Baja Coastal Cantina. Thursday evening, Main Street comes to life with the Sunset Market, featuring vendors, live entertainment, and lots of good food.
